Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic announced tonight in Nis increasing pensions and salaries in the public sector until the end of the year, and added that the poorest part of the population would be able to count on a better standard of living. Vucic said at a press conference held after the meeting with chiefs of five districts, mayors and presidents of all municipalities of Nisava, Toplica, Pirot, Jablanica and Pcinja districts, that the salaries for doctors, social workers and health institutions, the army and police would be increased. He announced opening 5,000 new jobs in Nis, which is excellent news for the city, where in two days a contract with the company Leoni, which will employ 2,200 people, will be signed. According to Vucic, the government plans to build a motorway to the Macedonian border, while next year the construction of the motorway Nis-Pristina will be launched. By coming to Nis we are showing that Serbia is not only Belgrade, said the Prime Minister. He announced that in two days 28 EU ambassadors will arrive in Nis, because the government wants to show them the city.
